Slew of bouts official for UFC Fight Night 117 in Japan

 

The lineup for UFC Fight Night 117 in Japan is taking shape with a slew of new additions.

UFC Fight Night 117 takes place Sept. 22 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, near Tokyo. It’s expected to air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

UFC officials recently added a handful of new matchups to the overseas card.

The biggest official addition is a previously reported fight between Claudia Gadelha (15-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC), who’s No. 2 in the MMA women’s strawweight rankings, and No. 3-ranked Jessica Andrade (16-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC).

Also on the card, welterweight Hyun Gyu Lim (13-6-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC), who’s in a must-win situation due to his current 1-3 skid, meets undefeated promotional newcomer and Pancrase vet Daichi Abe (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

Additionally, welterweight Alex Morono (13-3-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC), whose recent loss to Niko Price was overturned when his opponent failed a drug test due to marijuana, now puts his seven-fight winning streak on the line against Keita Nakamura (32-8-2 MMA, 2-5 UFC), a 14-year vet who’s 2-2 in his third and most recent UFC stint.

Also on the card are two featherweight bouts: Rolando Dy (8-5-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) vs. Teruto Ishihara (9-4-2 MMA, 2-2-1 UFC) and Mizuto Hirota (18-8-2 MMA, 1-3-1 UFC) vs. Charles Rosa (11-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC).

The latest UFC Fight Night 117 card now includes:

  • Mauricio Rua vs. Ovince Saint Preux
  • Jessica Andrade vs. Claudia Gadelha
  • Henrique da Silva vs. Gokhan Saki
  • Jussier Formiga vs. Ulka Sasaki
  • Chan-Mi Jeon vs. Syuri Kondo

Ronda Rousey Signs Full-Time Contract with WWE

Ronda Rousey Signs Full-Time Contract with WWE

The wait is finally over! Ronda Rousey has signed a deal with WWE and surprised the wrestling world by making an appearance at the Royal Rumble.

For those who missed it, Rousey walked to the ring after Asuka won the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble and pointed to the WrestleMania sign. She also shook Stephanie McMahon‘s hand.

According to ESPN, Ronda has signed a full-time deal with WWE and the former UFC star told them “This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years.”

“This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt,” Rousey continued. “When I first met with Triple H, I told him, ‘There are other things I can do with my time that’ll make way more money, but I won’t enjoy nearly as much.’”

As for how it was kept a secret … the 30-year-old told ESPN she flew commercial from Colombia to Florida, then took a private flight into New Jersey, and multiple different cars and back doors/elevators en route to the arena. A makeup artist on the movie she’s filming even went as far as posting a picture on social media this morning to make it appear as though Ronda was on set.

No word yet on who she’s set to face-off against at WrestleMania.
